The U.K. Daily Mail reports that Joe DiGenova, a one-time federal prosecutor, told radio host Laura Ingraham Tuesday “that the FBI’s still-pending investigation of Clinton’s email server seems to have reached ‘a critical mass.'”
Further, “[a] recommendation for prosecution would not only roil the presidential race, but would put President Barack Obama in an unbelievably difficult position.”
All well and good, but would such an indictment or even its serious consideration really put “President Barack Obama in an unbelievably difficult position”? Or will it just toss him into the briar patch he wants? After all, there are two things we know about Barack: one, he has an infinite capacity for self-delusion, and two, he hates both Clintons.
So here’s a prediction: if Clinton gets indicted, Michelle Obama gets the Obama team’s nod for the nomination.
Can Barack and Michelle pull such a thing off? No, but the point is that they will think they can. Remember the confidence, one might even say arrogant confidence, with which they flew off to Copenhagen in order to get the Olympics for Chicago and how flummoxed they were when the IOC gave them the back of their hand? Remember how confident he was that his eighty-something speeches around the country would produce a groundswell of public opinion in favor of Obamacare? How certain he was his Cairo apology would have the Middle East running to learn at his knee? How certain she was of sainthood for insisting upon “healthy” school lunches? Indeed, just look at how both he and Michelle drip sticky condescension on any of the lesser minds who disagree with them.
